BLK Cosmetics Bridal All-day Intense Matte set

What to get the ‘IT girl’ of your life this Christmas? Anne Curtis recommends the BLK Cosmetics Bridal All-day Intense Matte limited edition set. BLK Cosmetics is the brainchild of the newlywed actress, which aims to give the discerning Filipina uncomplicated beauty. 

This limited edition set comes in a pretty blue box, and features the two shades that Curtis used during her big day. The ‘I do’ was worn during the ceremony – a nude pink lipstick that gave Curtis a naturally romantic look suiting the wilds of New Zealand. 

Meanwhile, perhaps named after the newlyweds’ favorite term of endearment to each other, Curtis swiped the red and bold ‘Mon Amour’ shade on her lips during their fun and star-studded reception.
